When my elementary school teacher in a small town in Georgia began reading our class Great Expectations, I had no idea it was the beginning of a long, lovely relationship with words. I’ve since exchanged covered bridges and hospitality for frozen winters and a polished professionalism in Sweden, but I’ve taken my love for writing with me. I’ve come a long way since then and while the days of thirty children huddled together, sometimes holding hands, wondering what would happen to Pip are over, my love affair with books isn’t. I’ve written, and published, poetry, short stories, personal essays, and a novel.
I have no plans to stop anytime soon.
